Doctoral Programs in Accounting, Finance and Taxation – 10 Scholarships available
The Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences (GESS) at the University of Mannheim offers excellent opportunities for highly motivated students with a quantitative orientation to pursue their doctoral degree in Accounting, Finance or Taxation.
Profit from an internationally recognized teaching and training. The course program of the first three semesters lays the critical foundation necessary for later research and paves a path for you to work in intense collaboration with our dynamic and outstanding faculty. This occurs both in theoretical projects and in empirical fields, where learning-by-doing transfers information about data sets, research strategy, and econometric tools. Our programs also offer links to other interesting disciplines and integrate them into a coherent curriculum conforming to top international standards.
The research results by our students and graduates are regularly published in the leading journals and our graduates have undertaken distinguished careers in academics, industry, and government. Many of them are currently enriching some of the best departments and research facilities worldwide as professors, assistant professors or post-docs.
Our program in Accounting spans over the fields of Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, and Auditing and provides students with core competencies in analytical, empirical, and normative research methods as well as a profound knowledge of the relevant institutional details in their field.
Our program in Finance spans over the fields of Asset Pricing, Banking, Behavioral Finance and Decision Making, Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, Investment Management, as well as Insurance and Risk Management. It provides students with core competencies in analytical, empirical, and normative research methods as well as a profound knowledge of the relevant institutional details in their field. The reason for this strong empirical orientation in our Finance program is the availability of excellent databases. These market data are often supplemented by data on individual decision making and by data on non-traded financial contracts, all available at the University of Mannheim.
Our program in Taxation works in close collaboration with researchers affiliated to the newly established Mannheim Taxation Science Campus (MaTax) responsible for bundling their expertise in tax research across the disciplines of business administration, economics, law, and political science. The program spans over the fields of Company Taxation, Public Finance, Innovation Taxation, Taxation of the Financial Sector, Tax Harmonization in the European Union, International and European Tax Law, Tax Competition, Behavioral Responses to Taxation, and Tax Incidence.
